Wellcome II, 298; cf Osler 7574 (original drawings); not in Garrison-Morton, Waller, Eimas or Norman. FIRST AND ONLY EDITION AND AUTHOR'S PRESENTATION COPY of Hooper's pathological atlas of the human uterus, the second of its kind by him beside the The Morbid Anatomy of the Human Brain published four year before. "At the back of his work on the uterus Hooper stated that his two works were in the same format; presumably he envisaged them to be bound together. Whether this is the case or not, the two works followed a similar structure. Hooper's chief aim was nosological, seeking a taxonomy of lesions: he argued that his work sought "to diffuse the knowledge of morbid structure, and enable the pathologist to distinguish organic diseases from one another" (D.B.Meli, Visualizing Disease: The Art and History of Pathological Illustrations, 2017, pp.161-62). - Visit our website to see more images!
